Victor is young boy from Kenya. Victor, a quiet boy aged seven years was diagnosed with hypospadias, a congenital condition where the urethral orifice is abnormally placed. Since then, it has been a journey of hospitalization but still, Victor has not had surgical care. When they heard how much it would cost for Victor to undergo surgery, his parents opted to stay back and hope all would fall into place someday. Through the Bethany Kids mobile clinic team, Victor was referred to our facility where surgery has been recommended. If not treated, he is at risk of having fertility problems and social stigma. Victor is the only child to his mother and together, lives in a one-room rental house in Nairobi suburbs. His father, abandoned them long before Victor was born. Victor’s mother sells second-hand clothes to sustain her family needs. She is however not able to raise the funds needed for Victor’s surgical care.
Victor was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility.
Fortunately, Victor is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on September 17th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Victor Says, “I dream big- dreams of becoming a surgeon one day to help others. Please help me get treated.”
